More than a hundred police forces have attacked university students in northern Mazar-e Sharif city today detaining a number of them on charges of hanging a Persian/Dari banner on the gate of the university.

Police have also raided the hostel of the university and forced out students from their rooms.

“I was on duty, washing dishes and preparing meal for other roommates that some policemen entered our room with weapons, hitting me with guns forced me out of my room and then out of the university campus,” says a 24-year-old student of economy faculty, who did not wish to be named.

The hostel of the university is inside the university campus and all the students in the hostel were forced out of the campus by police.

Beside Afghanistanis there were also Indian teachers working in this school. It soon became a centre for new ideas, and it was there that Afghanistan’s constitutional movement was born.

In 1911, Mahmud Tarzi, who came back to Afghanistan after years of exile in Turkey and was influential in government circles, started a fortnightly publication named Saraj’ul Akhbar. Saraj was not the first such publication in the country, but in the field of journalism and literature it instigated a new period of change and modernization. A periodical named Shams’ul Nahar had started publication in the year 1873, but it was unable to influence journalism in any way and left no traces whatsoever in literary circles.
